Elections 2024: ‘Stop Undermining Electoral Transparency ‘, CARE-GHANA Tells EC

According to CARE-GHANA, in a press release on Monday, June 3, 2024, the Electoral Commission's decision that political parties will be prohibited from observing the Transfer of Votes Exercise creates doubts among the public.

CARE-GHANA, a civil society organization, accuses the EC and the police of undermining transparency in the electoral process by preventing party agents from observing the voter transfer and ID replacement process.

They are of the view that, by preventing party agents and independent observers, the EC’s commitment to transparency and inclusivity in the electoral process is called into question.
